I'm Courtney and I'm so happy you're here. This blog a journal about my family, CMP, and photography education. Stay a while and say hello!
Some kiddos come in and its harder to get a serious face than a smile, and Hazel was one of them! She was so joyful, with such an infectious smile and laugh.
Ohh, how I love this beautiful family! They’ve truly been with me since the beginning of CMP before the biggest sweet sister arrived! I’ve photographed 3 beautiful babies for this family, and 2 of 3 heirloom portraits. Watching them welcome baby Rush into their lives has been such a blessing.
Annabelle was so sweet for our session! She is the little sister of Mae, who came in a while back to have her first birthday portrait made! It’s always special to photograph siblings.
Copeland is ONE and officially a graduate of my First Year Collective membership! This membership captures the three most popular milestones of baby’s first year – newborn, around 6-8 months, and again at one year old!
I photographed EJ as a brand new baby, and now he is a big 2 year old! We had SO much fun during his portrait sitting. It’s always amazing to see a little one I photographed as a brand new baby a few years later. Watching families grow from behind my camera is one of the things I love most about my job as a photographer!
I’ve been photograhping these sweet sisters since they were itty bitty, and I can’t believe how big they’ve gotten!
In late 2022 I introduced a brand new offering at CMP called my “Simplicity Portraits” and Isla was one of the first to come to the studio for this very special session! I am OBSESSED with the playful, fun, and simple nature of these portraits that make these images truly shine.
And Hallie makes FIVE! I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since their oldest son turned one! And in just those two years they’ve welcomed two more beautiful babies into their family.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a mid year sitter session is easily a favorite of mine. This post is PURE SUGAR. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a mid year sitter session is easily a favorite of mine. There’s just not much better than a squishy little babe – who can’t crawl away from me quite yet!
Sweet Annie and Wade made a long trip in for their heirloom portrait session, and I’m so thankful they did! We had so much fun giggling, laughing and just being silly during our time together.
Celebrating the arrival of sweet baby Geoffrey with the Johnson family was such a joy! I photographed big brother James Austin four years ago when he was an itty bitty baby, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to capture the baby that completes this beautiful family of five. Big sister Amelia was so attentive to her big brothers, and I loved capturing the natural and authentic connection in my Greenville, SC studio.
Pierce came in from Charlotte, NC to have his special portrait captured! He is the same age as his big sister was when she made the trip in for portraits! Ironically, he was in mama’s tummy at that time. I love that this work allows me to watch children and families grow!
